Sorted For E's And Whizz by Pulp
Transcribed by Dave Twisleton xd321dt01@ntu.ac.uk

{The verse is just C and G, it'll seem obvious.}

[Verse1]
             C
Oh is this the way they say the futures meant to feel?

               G
Oh just twenty thousand people standing in a field

            C
And I just don't understand quite what this feeling is

               G
That's okay cos we're all sorted out for E's and Whizz

         C
And tell me when the spaceship lands
                                                                       G
Cos all this has just got to mean something

[CHORUS]
Dm
        In the middle of the night

F                       G                            Bb
        It feels alright but then tomorrow morning


Am                      Bb           G       G
Ohh ohh when you come down

Oh yeah the pirate radio told us what was going down
Got the tickets from some messed up bloke in Camden Town
And no one seems to know exactly where it is
But that's okay, cos we're all sorted out for E's and Whizz
At four o' clock the normal world seems very very very far away
Hey hey

[CHORUS]
                          C                         G
Just keep on moving

C
Everybody asks your name they say we're all the same
                        G
And now it's, Nice One, Geezer - that's as far as the conversation went

  C
I lost my friends I dance alone, it's 6 o' clock, I wanna go home

[This bit's spoken, and the timing's a bit weird, so just do the chords as before!]
              G
But it's no way not today, makes you wonder what it meant

                 C...
And this hollow feeling grows and grows and grows and grows
And you wanna call your mother and say, "Mother,
I can never come home again because I seem to have left
an important part of my brain somewhere in a field in Hampshire.  Alright

[CHORUS]

Am                        Bb
Oohh Oohh when you come down
Am                           Bb
Ooh what if you never come down?

gd tab but it doesnt sound quite right just playin those chords without a band. if ur on ur own this is how i do it, sounds decent. wont try to tab the rythm.

for the C chord alternate these
e|-0-0-|
B|-1-1-|
G|-0-0-|
D|-2-2-|
A|-3-x-|
E|---3-|

for the G chord these
e|-----|
B|-3---|
G|-4-0-|
D|-5-0-|
A|-5-2-|
E|---3-|
before going back to the C i also play the top two strings of an open G (both fret 3 or B open, e fret 3)

and i like these chords for the chorus
e|-5---5----7---6---5--|
B|-6---6----8---6---5--|
G|-7---5----7---7---5--|
D|-7---7----9---8---7--|
A|-5---8---10---8---7--|
E|--------------6---5--|
Dm F G Bb Am
the F chord can be awkward so just move ur pinkie from the G string to the A string and slide up to a G chord, makes it smoother

also, my guitar may be slightly out of tune - although the chords sound fine with the song - so if it sounds right for you then dont change it, but the intro riff sounds better if you move everything down a fret

actually the G in the verse sounds better if u try to follow the tune of whatever that keyboardy thing is:
e|------3-3-|
B|-3--6-----|

best way to do it is with the first G chord i listed above, the part of a G barre chord, then when doing the sort of open G chord play first fret then third on the e string. its possible if a bit annoying and sounds better

this is the easiest way

e|----1h3--3--|
B|-3--0-0--0--|
G|-4--0-0--0--|
D|-5--0-0--0--|
A|-5----------|
E|------------|
